Today, we tackle entertainment accounting. As with many industries, entertainment has its own unique tax, law, and finance implications. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Have all contracts drawn up by entertainment lawyers. Arbitration can get costly and an entertainment lawyer will know the ins and outs that will keep you from adding legal expenses.
  • Be sure to find a bank that specializes in the entertainment industry, as others will be less willing to offer loans.
  • The IRS has a whole section of tips and advice for entertainment taxes. Make use of this valuable resource to avoid penalties.
